    This may also be a teamster job. I worked at airborne express for 2 days in 1997. I wouldn't want to go back. Seems that since dhl took over their image has gone down hill.

    to compare it to UPS you should find out about vacations/sick/personal days and stuff and if they get benefits of any kind after a year or so.

    Yeah the teens really need those... Look at who we attract, mostly older people now because young people dont want/need benefits.
